Do you value collaboration?
Yes, we're really asking.
“The VALUE of…” is a new podcast series exploring what is important to Christ-centered leaders. Values are more than things we profess. Values are the essential elements that guide a leader's decisions and actions. They help teams make decisions and know what is important.
Across the next several episodes we’ll dive into questions like:
Why are values important?
What does living into our values look like (and why it’s important)?
What are examples of transformational ministries that can result?
And what adaptive leadership challenges emerge when you’re living and leading from your values.
This week we start with an exploration of the value of collaboration. As a Christ-centered leader, the ministries you shepherd likely depend on collaboration.

It’s also important for leaders to practice ongoing reflection, relationship-building, and feedback to foster collaboration. Yes, we’re pointing to community. A community is important in enabling effective collaboration. Look for more on that next week. Embrace collaboration as a key value and leverage it to bring about meaningful transformation in your ministry and beyond.
